Hi Joe,

If you are standardizing rates within five calendar years, you'll end up
with five standardized rates and hence five SEs.
Yes?

Hi
 
I have carried out my dstdize command but would like to get hold of the
standard errors of the adjusted rates, either displayed or saved. I am
using version 9.2. I have tried
 
dstdize ndths pops agegrp, by(year) using(european_pop.dta)

return list

 
The standardisation goes ok but the returned results look like the
output below. I was expecting the r(se) matrix to be a macro, and to be
the standard error I am looking for, according to the online help but it
seems not to be the case. I am assuming I have done something wrong but
can't figure it out.
 
Any advice would be gratefully received.
 
Joe West
